All students are encouraged to stay at school for lunch. Our chef, Linda Vipond, and her staff use fresh, locally sourced ingredients to prepare delicious hot meals. A sandwich bar, pasta pots and paninis are also available in both Durham and Brancepeth dining rooms. A meal deal costs £2.60. If you think your child might be eligible for free school meals, please contact us. The dining rooms operate on a cashless system using ParentPay. Any student who wishes to leave site at lunchtime is required to obtain a lunch pass and be supervised at home by their parents during this period.
